    I picked up the orage box over the weeked in the $10/£5.66 offer. At the same time I downloaded the crossover games trial. Steam downloaded fine and I downloaded HL2 and ep1 overnight. The games launched fine, but after about 10 mins of playing the game crashed back to the desktop. Relaunching, the same thing happened. I had a browse round the crossover forums and added -console to the launch options and set the shader detail to low as suggested, but it still crashes at random points and won't load some savegames. As I haven't bought crossover yet, I can't open a ticket or post to their forum. The messages I get include:

    failed to lock vertex buffer in CMeshDX8::LockVertexBuffer


    - pure virtual function call

    Has anyone encountered this or have a work around?

    Yes, Crossover games 7.2.0 crashes on me in HL2. I lucky have been using crossover games a bit earlier and had 7.1.1 and that does not crash on me. I noted it in the forums and one of the staff said he recognized the issue but a fix has not yet happened. So I'm using CXG 7.1.1 to play it... so I don't know what to tell ya on getting the previous ver of CXG.
